Which Seattle Mayoral Candidate Are You?

Take our quiz to figure out which of Seattle’s leading mayoral candidates is most like you.

The field is set! The race for the highest office in the city is on as 21 candidates vie for the title of Mayor of Seattle. Between now and the primary deadline on August 1 we will learn a lot about the candidates. But you’ve got to start somewhere, so we created a quiz to match you with your most likeminded candidate. For the sake of expediency, we’ve narrowed the field down to the race’s six most viable candidates—but you really should explore the entire field.

Remember that this is just for fun and you should, in no way, base your final vote on the results. But it is also serious, for within this quiz are the questions that will be at the heart of the campaign. We hope that, in the end, it’s just seriously fun.
